Hello everybody. We are collecting CDs that you no longer use and you want to get rid.

You can leave them at Huma, at Luis Cordero and Presidente Cordova next to Movistar. Another place is Garasa, at Calle Larga and Vargas Machuca. If you have a lot of CDs we can go to your house too.

Besides that, we invite you to check the exhibition that we have at the moment at Huma. From small things, clothing, small sculptures to furniture and lighting.

We are opened from 10 am to 7 pm, from Monday to Saturday.

Looking for Santa

We put our calls in, but it looks like he is too busy to make it, so we need to find a look-alike! Every year, we bring happiness to hundreds of children dealing with catastrophic illnesses such as cancer and HIV. It is a huge undertaking that requires lots of support and assistance.

This year, we will be having a feria from December 8th to 12th at Plaza del Herrero. There will be about 100 vendors and lots of activities. To encourage participation and bring awareness to the needs of the children, we plan to have a “Take your picture with Santa”. This will take place on Saturday and Sunday, Dec 11th, and 12th. We will not charge for this, but children will be given the opportunity to write a letter to Santa, drop it in the mailbox, and bring a food item to another child in need.

If this is something that interests you, please contact us. If you do not have a Santa suit, no problem, we can get one. Spanish is not required. We just need to make you look as close to the real guy as possible.

Is it high time to move out to the country and start farming?

We are looking to relocate to a property 20 minutes outside Vilcabamba. We are seeking people interested in creating a neighborhood permeated with permaculture values and lots of clean green organic food. We have a 25-acre parcel that we want to offer on. However, we are 5 families with $50,000 each and we want to offer on a $450,000 property. Ideally, we would like 5 more families with $50,000 each to seal the deal. However, if 1 or 2 families wanted to take a bigger share that would work too.
The property is 80% flat and perfect for farming and building homes. There is system of 3-inch pipes bringing water in to the top of the property for easy gravity feed irrigation and home water supplies. There is also a river at the bottom of the property that is directly from the Potocarpus and delivers super clean water from an uninhabited national preserve. You can drink right from the river.
There is internet in the valley, Electricity but cell service is not available so internet based calls on Whatsap or telegram etc.. are the way to stay in contact.
There is an extensive fruit forest down by the river and we would like to make …
